Tammy Duckworth Ravages Tucker Carlson During Fiery Rebuke

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) hammered Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Twitter after he complained about her during a petulant monologue on his show. Carlson was initially responding to comments that Duckworth had made during a Sunday interview on CNN. Asked if statues of historical figures on the level of George Washington should be removed — Washington was a slaveowner — Duckworth said that she supported a national conversation about the issue and quickly pivoted into pointing out the unfolding crises that the president should be occupying his time with rather than working himself into a frenzy in defense of statues. Carlson, in response, worked himself into a frenzy in defense of statues — he went so far that he ludicrously suggested that Duckworth and her allies “hate the U.S.”.

On Twitter, Duckworth replied:

‘Does @TuckerCarlson want to walk a mile in my legs and then tell me whether or not I love America?’

Duckworth is a veteran who lost both of her legs while serving overseas in 2004. She is one of the people who’ve been floated as a potential running mate for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

What has Carlson done besides make a career out of saying what seems like the most outrageous things that he can think of? In his original monologue in which he whined about Duckworth, he’d said:

‘When Duckworth does speak in public, you’re reminded what a deeply silly and unimpressive person she is. It’s long been considered out of bounds to question a person’s patriotism. It’s a very strong charge, and we try not ever to make it. But in the face of all of this, the conclusion can’t be avoided. These people actually hate America. There’s no longer a question about that.’

Carlson sounds totally cuckoo. There is no logical connection between supporting a national conversation about whether or not statues of slaveowners should stay up and automatically hating America. He and his colleagues at Fox News are helping turn their viewers against their fellow Americans, all in what might be able to be boiled down to an attempt to buoy their ratings.
